Sending i693 AFTER sending i485

30 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I was reviewing the instructions on i485 regarding the medical.

 

It states we may file the i693 after sending i485 or even elect to present it at the interview.

 

Anyone done this before?  If so, any issues arise?

 

I plan to file before october 15th, but my wife will not be on my insurance by then and she needs her vaccines still for age 26 female (im counting 3 vaccines  and the flu vaccine)

 

so anyone file i693 after without issues?

Now you have to pay a civil surgeon to transcribe the vaccinations,  in the end I doubt you saved a dime

Vaccines. about $300 for everything.

 

civil surgeon to fill out paperwork, just 1 page of transfering he vaccine records.  about $60.

- and the civil surgeon that stated this cost told me to keep looking as there may be someone cheaper.

im saving. i checked before i made the decision lol.

going to also mention this. if you have a HSA, you CAN use your HSA to pay for the civil surgeon visit as it is a medical expense.again, did plenty of research on this andasked around.  i have not encountered one issue where irs didnt count it as a qualified expense.

 

overseas. i can not use my HSA as it must be used in the USA.  now. i prefer an answer to my original question thank you.

 

and i have $3k sitting in my HSA not being used on anything. again, with my circumstances, why would i get her  vaccines overseas and pay out of pocket?

We just paid $66 for tdap.   What about Mexico?

mexico, they had a 6 month wait on the vericella vaccine.  tdap  they wouldnt administer as she received when she was pregnant although she couldnt obtain records of it. mmr wouldve been a long wait as well at her local clinic/hospital.

 

costs during her medical would have been aproximately $200 again, cheaper for free from.insurance and pay the $60 (with hsa) to the civil surgeon

Maybe your situation was better to complete your vaccines overseas. thats great.

 

Mine clearly is better to do that here.  Now for the question of my post.

 

anyone encounter issues filing i163 after filing i485?  I plan to include a note regarding that part of the instructions and mentioning we will be sending in her i693 pages 1-5, 7, 10 after she is added to my insurance and vaccines are administered.

I'm not sure, but I think you can send your DS 3025 from her medical along with your application and take the I163 to the interview. That's what we're going to do. My husband didn't get the flu vaccine, because it wasn't flu season when he went for his medical. His DS 3025 is not marked complete. Instead, the civil surgeon wrote that it would be complete when he gets the flu vaccine.

Ds3025 is not required to be submitted.   The ds3025  was already included in visa medical report

The instructions for the I-485 says that the applicant must have a medical examination and file I-693 with the AOS package or later. The I-693 instructions though, says that if you're a K1, and had the medical overseas, you don't need file I-693, but you still need to show proof of your vaccination record. So even if the DS3025 is included in the visa package, you still need to show proof of the vaccination by adding the DS3025 to your AOS or showing it at the interview.

Where does it say to include in the AOS package?

 

Read C (2) carefully 

 

Proof if vaccinations record ONLY IF the ds3025 was NOT properly completed AND included in the Visa medical,  then you submit the appropriate sections of the I693 and NOT the ds3025
